Travel in luxury and walk among the redwood giants!
John Muir, in a 1908 letter referred to this sequoia grove as ". . . the best tree-lover's monument that could possibly be found in all the forests of the world". John Muir spent his life as a conservationist and the redwoods and sequoias of this national monument are a true testament to that.
Join me as I take you on a beautiful drive to Muir Woods where you will explore this great valley area. I will brief you on the history of the area and a history of John Muir. Once you've arrived, you'll likely see deer bouncing around the forest floor as you walk the great trees and see the babbling creek. There will be time for you to hike, have lunch at the café, and look at the handmade souvenirs available.
There are Park Ranger led tours and self-guided audio tours but I am available for a guided tour of the monument if you prefer. However, because of the limited parking, we may need to charter a car service. Let me know if this is what you would like and I will work with you on a new quote.
